Emergency!!!Helppppppp

I just went for swimming training and came back at 9.30. As I entered my car, I took a tissue from the tissue box and guess what was on it! An alate! I'm not very sure whether it was a queen or not though so I just brought it home and put it in a small plastic jar prepared like the test tube setup. What else could I use if I don't have a test tube. Please reply me fast. This is my first ant alate!!! :| :| :|

Please use something other than Photobucket. Imgur is a good picture upload page.

She will dig her own claustral cell in a container full of dirt. I have never done this I have always put them in test tubes so I don't know much about it.

If that's an ant, definitely a queen. Some zoomed in pics can help better identify the specie if its an ant. Hard to tell right now.

And one thing more, this section is not dedicated to ants, try to post your queries where they belong.
